MALZAHN HAS NOT BEEN NAMED AUBURN COACH......YET
I'll give Bielema credit for one of those. To give him credit for this year's Rose Bowl would be ridiculous, as the team is just lucky to be there.
Last year's Rose Bowl's credit goes to Paul Chryst, Russel Wilson, and Montee Ball. Unsure of Bielema's involvement in recruiting Ball, but know Chyrst had a bigger role in Wilson's recruitment.
In his first year w/o Chryst the team struggled big time offensively sans this past game vs Nebraska. A lot of that can be expected with the number of new coaches coming in, but also think a lot of that is credit to the influence Chryst had on this team.
